Veteran entertainer Gladys Knight rocked the house at Casino Rama last night! At 65 she shows absolutely no signs of slowing down and delivered a performance filled with emotion, style, rhythm, humour and nostalgia. And that big voice delivered during hit after hit song!
Gracious to a fault, Ms Knight repeatedly thanked "my people" as she calls her fans, "who gave me these songs and who have been with me every step of the way."
Her band and back-up singers were note-perfect and the stage, though simple, was very effective with great lighting effects adding to the singer's well-honed routine.
It was a great night out for those of us old enough to remember her string of hits starting with 1961's "Every Beat of My Heart". During her encore performance of "Midnight Train To Georgia" fans were lined up at the front of the stage to get a close-up and to reach out and touch the legendary performer.
Thank you Gladys!
